Girl Friday

WooHoo it’s Furiday!!! Me thought it would never get here. Now me knows you’re thinkin’ me’s excited cuz it’s da end of da week and da beginnin’ of da weekend, right? Me’s a cat, so what does me know ‘bout weeks and weekends really? Me only knows what mommy tells me; so me knows most of da world luvs Furiday. But dat’s not why me’s so excited. As you know it’s been stormin’ here fur so long me thinks me should grow some gills and fins. You know Dougie would feel right at home outside in our garden. Betta fish in da wild are often found in rice paddies or flood plains. And a flood plain is fur sure what we got goin’ on; so Dougie would be just fine out in da garden. Anyways, me’s getting’ off track. Me was gonna tell ya’ why me’s so happy it’s finally Furiday.

Dezi lounges atop the Liberty cat tree

Well mommy and me was checkin’ da weather report and you know what da weather guesser said? You know ya’ can’t really trust ‘em, cuz after all, they’re only right about 20% of da time. Did you know weather guessers go to school to learn how to guess what da weather’s gonna do? Y, mommy didn’t need any weather schoolin’ at all, and she can always tell ya’ when it’s gonna rain or storm. Mommy says her knee’s been purrdictin’ da weather fur over 30 years. Notice me respected mommy’s 35 and holdin’ age lie?. MOL  Anyways, mommy injured her knee years ago when she was young and says dat ole man Arfur-Itis tells her exactly when it’s gonna rain. And after her accident, she says her whole body is in tune with da weather. So me doesn’t know ‘zactly what those weather guessers learn at school, but it ain’t nearly as reliable as mommy’s knee and ole man Arfur-Itis.

Dezi stares out the window at the rain from the Liberty cat tree

Mommy, it’s still rainin’. 😦

 

Now, where was me? Oh yeah, me was tellin’ ya’ what da weather guesser said. He said dat only one more day of storms and we would have a whole week of mr. Sunshine. Dat’s right, mr. Sunshine was gonna be showin’ his smilin’ face ‘round here on Sunday and last fur days. Such welcome news, me’s gonna give him da benefit of da doubt and believe him this time. Me can’t wait, so he better be right. Or maybe me should consult mommys knee. Course, it’s time fur us to recertify our lease so mommy claims she’s gonna be really busy this month.

Dezi looks back from her door perch on the Liberty cat tree

Me’s gonna be right here watchin’ fur mr. Sunshine to appear.

 

As a matter of fact, we took da day off Fursday and mommy worked so hard on da house dat she was pourin’ sweat. She looked like she had been standin’ outside in da storms. Me doesn’t know why she thinks she needs to tear da house up, but she says it’s…time. Time? What does she mean…Time? Time fur what? Oh don’t worry, you know me. Me will tell you all as soon as me figgers out what she’s talkin’ ‘bout. Me can’t keep a secret from me’s furiends. Maybe dat’s why mommy won’t tell me her age, ya think? 

In da meantime, mommy was so purroud of me fur offurin’ to help her with da carpet monster.  

 Dezi uses the Shark vacuum

No, self purrpelled or not, me can’t actually push dat thing ‘round, but…me didn’t run away and hide from it like me used to. And let me tell ya’ dat thing will almost run itself. Dat’s why mommy bought it all those years ago. She needed somethin’ light weight dat didn’t take a 100 pounds to push. Ya’ know she passes out, a lot, and so anytime she can get help with somethin’ like dat, she takes it. And let me tell ya’ another thing, it’s pawsum at pickin’ up those litter pieces of scattered litter and all dat shed pet furs. Now we ain’t bein’ paid by da Shark peeps, so this ain’t no sponsored posty or commercial; but we know a lot of ya’ are often lookin’ fur good carpet monsters, so me just thought me’d tell ya’, this is a good one. Now was dat a run on sentence or what? MOL  Anyways, where was me? Oh yeah, purroud mommy. Me hung in there close to da action and mommy, dat she called me her Girl Furiday…whatever dat is. You know it doesn’t take much to make mommies and daddies purroud, fank catness. So, we have lots to do mommy says, so we will be by to visit with ya’ll as soon as we can.

 Dezi looks smugly from atop the Liberty cat tree

What’s dat mommy? You want me to move so you can get all da furs off da cat tree? Let me think ’bout it, okay?

Till da next time……………………………………Be Blest!!!

Grumble, Rumble, Mumble

Meowllo everypawdy, can you believe this year is half over? Time just flies by these days. We’ve been havin’ storms all week long so you all know where me has spent most of me’s time. But wait, yesfurday da skies were alit and rumblin’ really, really loud. No crashes or booms, just a loud rollin’ rumble. Sounded a lot like a Harley Davidson motorcycle or a blown muffler. So me didn’t ‘zactly know what to do. Should me hide? Should me go ‘bout da day like it’s nothin’? Finally me decided to consult mommy.

Dezi close up on arm of chair

Hey, Mommy?

Mommy, is dat there noise thunder, me asked?

Honey, it ain’t nothin’ you need to worry your pretty little head with. I won’t let anything hurt you. 

Yes, me knows mommy, but is dat thunder? Me needs to know whether me needs to hide or not.

Well Dezi you know I want you to stay out here in the open with me. Thunder or no thunder. I won’t let anything get you.

Thunder or no thunder huh? So does dat mean it’s thunder? 

Yes Dezi it’s thunder. But it’s been rumblin’ now for hours and you’ve slept right through it. So just because you’re awake now doesn’t mean you need to hide. It didn’t get you while you napped, and it’s not gonna get you now. 

Dezi rests her head on the scratcher for a nap

Hmmmmm You may be right mommy, but everypawdy knows me hides when it storms.

Well sweet Dezi, you know what? 

What mommy?

You don’t have to be known as a hider. You could change what everybody knows and be the kitty girl that isn’t afraid of the storms.

BOOM!!!! 

What was dat???

 Dezi leans on scratcher and looks at camera

Nothin’ darlin’.

(Dezi scurries and slinks her way behind the chair)

Yeah mommy, me will give dat bravery stuffs more thought. In da meantime, ifin ya’ need me, me will be behind da chair. And as long as da skies are grumblin’, don’t call me. Me will let ya’ know when me’s available, okay?. Me knows you’re purroud of me fur hangin’ out as long as me did. Maybe da rumblin’ ain’t so bad, but when da sky starts talkin’… it’s time fur this girly to get outta Dodge, wherever dat is. You can just read me everypawdy’s postys and me will yell me’s respawnses, okay mommy?

But what about the pictures Dezi? You won’t be able to see any of your friends pictures if you’re hidin’ out behind the chair?.

Well mommy, me doesn’t think they changed much over night. Me will see them when da storms stop. Now, we need to get to visitin’ mommy, cuz da lights keep flickerin’. We may lose power today. Me hopes da sun is shinin’ on you all.

We posted da video below awhile back, but me has lots of new furiends dat may not have seen it. Ifin ya’ ever wondered what me sounds like then listen up. Mommy calls it a meweek. A cross between a meow and a squeek.  MOL

Ifin ya’ can’t see da video, click here to watch it on YouTube.

A Patriot Through and Through

Meowllo everypawdy. Me doesn’t have to tell ya’ but today is Memorial day here in da United States. As you know me stays away from pawlotics here on me’s bloggy cuz well, there’s just no way to win. You know when it comes to holidays, we always seem to say Happy, Merry or some other gleeful expression. And so today there will be lots of “happy Memorial day” sayings. But me doesn’t exactly know what’s so happy about a day dat we remember those who have served and died or were irrepurrably injured fighting for the freedoms we live under. Especially considering da state of our current affairs.

 Dezi with U.S. flag, United we Stand

Now don’t get me wrong, me’s grateful to have been born in America and have those freedoms, and we are soooooooo grateful fur all those who serve and have served to keep us free and safe. Me is grateful to their families who while not serving abroad, served just da same. Me is thankful fur every fallen soldier and he/she is a hero in mes book. Me is thankful to all those who came back to their families and country. And me’s ashamed of how our country has treated some of those soldiers. Whether you agree with the war or not, those soldiers are following orders. Those soldiers are keeping you and me safe. Trust me, they would rather be back home safe and sound in their own beds with their own families. So shame on us fur not always supporting them da way we should. And shame on us fur allowing our government to take away some of da very freedoms dat were bought with da blood and lives of those soldiers.

Dat’s right, Freedom isn’t Free. While our government scurries about tryin’ to re-write history and take away our right to bear arms, or censor our speech, or the many other rights they think allow us to much choice, men and women in da military are still dying to purrtect those rights. Many of those same soldiers serve in areas where they’re not allowed to purractice da same rights they’re fighting fur you and me to keep. Shame on us fur bowing down to Cult leaders who call themselves rulers and telling our soldiers they must abide da rules of da tyrannical governments we as a nation are tryin’ to overthrow.

 Dezi with the U.S. flag and Bald Eagle with the Pledge of Allegience

Are we Patriotic? ABSOLUTELY YES!!! Do we luv America? ABSOLUTELY YES!!! We know we are blest to live in such a great country and we wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. This country was founded on da beliefs of da Bible and our fore fathers intended fur da people to control da government, not da other way around. God Bless America, land of da free and home of da brave. Let us never furget how this country was established and those who bled and died to ensure you could go about your days and nights safely without a care. Those who furget their past are doomed to repeat it. So today and everyday…

REMEMBER

Thank You!!!

Me will get off me’s soapbox now and wish you a safe and blest Memorial day. And mommy and me want to say a meowsy big Thank You fur your service. We will never furget. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!! 

Till da next time……………………………………Be Blest!!!

Blest Sunday

Meowllo and welcome to a brand new week. Of course me’s startin’ it off with a Blest Sunday posty. As you already know we had a pawsumly blest week and celebrated mommy’s birthday. Mommy says it was so nice to see so many who don’t admit their age either. But me wants to know why it is dat humans don’t like to get older or admit they are but when it comes to us anipals, ya’ll seem to get all beside yourself excited da older we get? You know, what’s up with dat?

Dezi in red pin art with purple threads.

Well mommy isn’t any good with DIY so we found this pin art in one of da foto editin’ apps and thought we would share it. Can ya’ make me out? MOL

Anyways, we have a question fur ya’ll. As ya’ know mommy doesn’t have any two legged non furry kids, and at this point in her life doesn’t want any. Me says fank catness, cuz me likes it just like it is. You know what would me do with a non furry? Me hears they get all sticky and chase us kitties around and try to pull our tails and such. Me has a lot of furs and sure wouldn’t wanna have to clean all da sticky off. And let me tell you, me may be gentle and all but pull me’s tail and me will go all ninja and whacky paw ya’ fur sure. (Dezi imitates her ninja moves and whacky paw- “KeeeeeYa”) Anyways, me’s getting’ off track. Let’s get back to dat question. Seems Direct TV has a new commercial and one of da lines says, “rethink havin’ that second child.” Now let me tell ya, mommy finds dat totally offensive and we don’t even have those kind of kiddies. Da commercial’s been playin’ now fur over a month, so obviously nopawdy’s sayin’ a thing. We don’t know ifin peeps just ain’t payin’ attention or ifin they think dat’s okay. So, purrlease, weigh in on this.

In other news, fur all of ya’ dat sent us e-mails askin’, yes mommy is still takin’ care of Buddy. Mr. W is gonna milk his rehab stay as long as he can, so he’s been transferred from da hospital in Ardmore to our hospital. A few years ago they revamped our hospital and put in a rehab center fur peeps just like mr. W. After mommy told him to quit orderin’ her around, he stayed mad at her fur ‘bout a week and finally called and asked nicely how Buddy was doin’. No, he never pawlogized, and he never will. At some point, he’ll start bossin’ her around again and mommy will tell him off again and we’ll start all over. It’s just da way of things. Some peeps are just too stubborn to learn from their faux pas. Fancy word dat faux pas, right? MOL 

 Dezi close up in a circular cube times 4.

We feel truly blest to have all of you in our lives. This past week was made easier because of all of you. Mommy still missed sissy and still had da sads, but your support helped ease da pain. And we are blest to have received da material blessings we had this week. And we’re always blest to have your purrayers and support. Remember to take a minute today and each day to give thanks fur da blessings in your lives. You will always be in our purrayers. Me’s gonna go take a nap now. Ooops, me almost furgot. Me’s joinin’ da Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies.

Till da next time…………………………………..Be Blest!!! 

So what do you think about the Direct TV commercial?
